The Church, I mean Roman Catholic Church, teaches that people of good will enjoy their after life in limbo, that is not hell or heaven but just some place for those deserve to live in. Babies who die and don't have time to be baptised are believed to be delivered to that limbo by God's mercy and providence. Actually, I have no enough knowledge on limbo. Maybe, nobody has such knowledge on the ground. But, it is a kind of hope, by which our friends belonging to other churches or religions, are allowed to enjoy good after life through the light of God. The Church never excludes other religions. Otherwise, where does Simeon or Anna wait for our Jesus? A remaining problem is that persons who don't believe anything. Even people living in communist countries believe in something existing beyond and ruling them. What do you see around you in western societies?
